Marquette Drive

The cul de sac was always there

A huge pine sat in the middle

When I was younger


When it was taken down

It opened up the whiffle ball diamond

And the street hockey rink

The gridiron for touch football


The board in front of the sewer

Was the sentry to Warwick's underground


It kept out the tennis ball when

Our slapshot missed the goal


It kept out the whiffle ball when

We fouled off a curveball


It also kept out the rainwater

Which piled up on Eddie Kay's yard


Until he came out with his T-shirt and

Threw our board into the woods

Where it would sit

Until the next game of pickle
